The (MOSCOT) Sun Is Back and Hotter Than Ever

MOSCOT Launches Its Sophomore 2012 Spring/Summer Sun Collection

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 13, 2012) - MOSCOT, a New York City institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear, today launches its 2012 Spring/Summer MOSCOT Sun Collection with five new styles: The ADRIENNE, CAMERON, CASSIUS, EMERSON, and ISOBEL. Summer is certainly shaping up.

The seasonal MOSCOT Sun Collection, known for bold, eclectic designs, circa the 1970s - 1990s, departs from the family archives but still adheres to the core creative values that makes each frame distinctively MOSCOT. The sophomore Collection is no exception. Big and bold, The ADRIENNE, CAMERON, CASSIUS, EMERSON, and ISOBEL feature fine details such as brushed metal on the temples and classic two dot rivets -- in addition, of course, to fly style.

Presenting the 2012 Spring/Summer MOSCOT Sun Collection:

The ADRIENNE - These oversized, playful, butterfly inspired frames are one part hippy dippy, two parts Ziggy Stardust, with a little (late sixties/early seventies) Laurel Canyon rock-and-roll thrown in for good measure. Made from acetate with brushed metal detail on frame front and temples, a saddle bridge, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Crystal with Gradient G-15 Lenses. Frame Price = $275 USD.

The CAMERON - The sleek and sexy CAMERON is rectangular yet round, masculine yet feminine, 1970s yet 1980s, old school yet au courant. Basically, The CAMERON ardently defies classification, except the sleek and sexy part, which it's totally willing to accede to. Made from acetate with brushed metal detail on frame front and temples, a saddle bridge, and a five barrel hinge. Available in Grey Beige with Brown Gradient Lenses. Frame Price = $275 USD.

The CASSIUS - Cross couture with Blade Runner and you get these badass, squared off, Aviator-like frames that pack a wallop of attitude and glamour. Perfect for the beach, Paris, or a Navy Seal. Made from acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge with vertical window cut out, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Black with Gradient G-15 Lenses and Crystal with Gradient G-15 lenses. Frame Price = $275 USD.

The EMERSON - One of our most luxurious frames to date, The EMERSON is sophisticated and seductive on women, stately and sexy on men. Warning: use of this frame may cause unintended summer romance. Made from acetate with brushed metal detail on frame front and temples, a saddle bridge, and a three barrel hinge. Available in Matte Tortoise with Brown Gradient Lenses. Frame Price = $275 USD.

The ISOBEL - Monaco meets the Lower East Side. The ISOBEL is an unmistakable cat eye, but slightly overstated for a more glamorous and alluring effect... no matter which hood you're hangin' in. Made from acetate with brushed metal detail on temples, a saddle bridge, and a five barrel hinge. Available in Bone with Brown Gradient Lenses, Matte Black with Brown Gradient Lenses, Mauve with Brown Gradient Lenses, and Vanilla Swirl with Brown Gradient Lenses. Frame Price = $275 USD.
